Her paintings helped her battle cancer, made construction workers cry at an exhibition in Sweden, and will in the future hang in children's hospitals.
Helena Blomljus’s second New York exhibition "Unending Shimmering Love" is displayed at the Chelsea gallery New Century Artist between September 20 and October 1.
“I just want to make people feel better; be calmer and happier. I want my art to be in places where you often feel afraid and uncomfortable,” Helena Blomljus said at the opening reception.
